, george w. bush never did anything like this. >> worse than dubya you're saying? >> i can't imagine george w. bush doing this. i can't imagine that. he had some sophistication about foreign affairs. this is shocking to me. >> krystal, this is one of those days where i have to say i appreciate the spirit of the british press. they are willing to step right up there and say what they mean. >> yeah. and you grabbed some amazing material. when i was prepping for this segment, i could have gone on for hours because there were so many fantastic tweets and quotes and headlines and so much material to work with. but honestly for mitt romney, there were essentially two goals for this trip, right? to sort of run around looking vaguely presidential and to sort of slyly remind people of his own olympic success. and in one day he's managed to kill both of those things by insulting everyone and looking the opposite of presidential. looking like he can't even handle, you know, the relationship that should have been the easiest, going to the olympics, going to our friends. it really is an incredible thing
policy crisis. romney called cheney a great american leader but did not mention former president george w. bush. >>> penn state is critical of facts instead of protecting young boys. that is the scathing conclusion of an eight-month inquiry into the school of handing of the jerry sandusky sex abuse scandal. >> reporter: former fbi director louis freeh said it was fear of bad publicity which kept penn state leaders including coach paterno from revealing details to law enforcement and the public about jerry sandusky's contact with young boys. >> the most but powerful man at penn state spent 14 years. >> reporter: they pored over 3 million documents some that showed that paterno contrary to his grand jury testimony did know about a 1998 police investigation into sandusky's contact with a young boy in the penn state locker room shower. freeh blasted former president spanier, athletic director tim curley and schultz for their actions. >> nobody even spoke to sandusky, not one of those four persons, including the coach who was a few steps away from his office. there's no indication anybody spok
for president george w. bush. paul begala is a democratic strategist and adviser to a pro-obama super pac. paul, let's begin with you. as you've heard, the obama campaign was basically saying mitt romney is either a criminal or he's a liar. and romney's campaign is calling on the obama campaign to apologize. saying it's demeaning to the office of the president. do you think, in fact, an apology is necessary, paul? >> no, toughen up, mitt. this is campaigns. this is politics. here's what thomas jefferson campaign said about john adams. they called him a hideous her farm ra diedic character. adams said worse things about jefferson. if you're not tough enough to stand up to stephanie cutter, how are you going to stand up to vladimir putin, i mean, come on. >> even if it turns out to be completely untrue, what they say. >> no, this is completely true. there are signed documents that list him as the ceo. there are other documents that he signed that are sworn that said he had nothing to do with the company at the time. his public financial disclosure documents. one of them is wrong. either he was th
that will george w. bush got in the past. you're seeing that in some of the analysis that conservatives are giving of the romney campaign. we're being far more honest about romney than we were about bush. if you were the romney campaign, i'd say i will release my paper trail when the president relations his. where is his college transcripts? where is all the transparency what he did before he was in the illinois state sneempl are you kidding me. >>> margie, you believe that that is a fair equation here on one breath, you say that governor romney needs to be more transpare transparent. he is running for the highest office in is this country. the american people need to know more about his tax returns and you are saying this. aim not saying this. this is what you're saying but you want to flip the corner and then bring up the president's college transcript. that's your -- >> the reason -- i don't really. >> those things are equal here? >> the reason why is because i frankly don't trust -- this whole thing about his tax returns i think for democrats is a red herring. this is about transparent say. th
party here in the united states. going back over the last ten years, since george w. bush forged a very close relationship with former british prime minister tony blair, with whom he was not an ideological soul mate. here was an opportunity for mitt romney and david cameron, peas in a pod politically, both conservatives to try and establish some kind of alliance that could take them both forward. and instead, mitt romney has found himself causing david cameron to come out and push back on this issue of the olympics, because as chris ship knows, better i think than any of us, david cameron's own credibility is at stake over the success or failure of these olympic games. >> well, let's look at romney trying to clean up the mess. but i do want to remind our viewers here in the states of what david cameron did to take a shot at him in the morning. let's take a look at this morning on the "today" show, our big morning show here. mitt romney tried to end the static he had stirred up with a "nightly news" interview he did with brian williams. he did it by complimenting now. he has switched in

george w. bush was running for president he talked about a more humble foreign policy. obama promised to close down guantanamo. he extended many of president bush's policies. so it is hard to say at this stage of the game what mitt romney really means and what and how he might act as commander in chief. >> and in afghanistan and syria, dan, pretty general comments by governor romney, not real specific, particularly on syria which is the hottest issue now going. pretty much stayed a step back about saying what he would do. >> syria is a difficult issue. afghanistan the president said he is pulling troops down. it is difficult for romney to say i will push troops back up. >> particularly when the american public seems to be war weary and supports this withdrawal. >> i think matt made an important distinction that needs to be emphasized. this isn't just president obama this is modern democratic foreign policy doctrine calling it leading from behind. which means we only act until we get the support of allies report united nations and that is what we have done in iran and labia and that wa

at running mates and teams, is it al gore and clinton, is it cheney and george w. bush? who in the past, is it george herbert walker bush and ronald reagan? what's your role model for what a good vice president should be. is it joe biden? >> i haven't really given that a lot of thought or studied the dynamic or synergies between the vice president and the president in years gone past. i would want to give that some thought and give you a more thoughtful answer but just off the cuff, i would say if you look at the relationship that ronald reagan had with george bush, h.w. bush, that seemed to be a healthy, dynamic and constructive relationship. i'm sure there are others. but just off the cuff, that would be one that would be worth further review and study. seems they had a good relationship and good partnership. >> people are talking about senator portman, one of your colleagues, because of ohio and the importance of ohio. clearly minnesota is not considered a swing state here. the last time it actually voted for a republican -- >> 1972 is the answer. it's the longest unbroken streak of
, it was -- it was -- we were in a full recovery mode. but it was way too late to save george h.w. bush. >> greta: i don't know how there could be a recovery between now and november by simple indicators, for instance, we are borrowing money, the interest rate is as low as you can get, you can't loosen up money. there are certain indcaishts where i don't know where the margins, where the president's going to see breathing room. have you problems in europe that are not getting better that have an enormous influence on the economy. nonetheless, he's the president and he gets stuck with it. i don't know -- i don't see any indicator in the economy that will help him enormously. >> i don't think we will have a strong rebound between now and election day. but the only point i was trying to make, even if we did, sentiment may have begun to turn in such a way that it's too late. >> greta: is there one ethnick group or demographic, which is key to the independent vote right now? >> well, no. i don't know how -- i couldn't possibly slice up the independent vote and tell you, you know, what its ethnic composition
sense. but the top marginal rate was 39 when president george w. bush came in. cut to 35. i think if we get good deficit reduction, bringing it to 35, i think that helps the economy. >> greta: looking at that and i want to talk to you about health care. but i am curious about the tax question, i see it in the health care and the tax are targeted at a certain economic strat a. i am curious, how much additional revenue -- if you know -- will be in the treasury if the taxes go up as to people who make $250 thrnd or more i. income tax or the health care? >> greta: income. >> the income over a 10- >> greta: one-year period? >> with 10, it's $3... $150 billion for one year. >> greta: one year. i did a little research. that's about -- it costs $10 billion a day to run the federal government. so that's a 15-day, you are asking for 15 days. >> it's a drop in the bucket. here's some other things. we should find a way to fairly restrain entitlement spending, this is a personal view. i think that medicare benefits should not vest until later for younger workers, i would say that if a person's under
campaign to distort and lie about. two republicans who disagree. former george w. bush arry fliesher. and also joining us, gloria borger. so i know you and a lot of republicans think romney should release his tax returns and the campaign is saying fairly or unfairly would be like handing ammunition to the obama campaign. do you buy it? >> i buy it. i don't think we're going to see any. i don't think any of the republicans think there is anything wrong that mitt romney has done. what we want is the deextraction to be over so we can get to the real issues, the big issues that the american people are interested in. this has become a ridiculous distraction and i do think it's taking a toll. i think there was nothing illegal or inappropriate that he has done. he is a well think man who has been successful and he should embrace that and we should gelt this over with, take the band-aid off, let's move on and let's start talking about the economy. let's start talking about jobs. we've been talking about this now for days and days and days. >> ari, what about that? it's not just among media t
is the former deputy assistant to -- former president george w. bush, and dick harpootlian is chairman of the south carolina democratic party. i mean, the past three days the news headlines are replete with did mitt romney have operational control of bain capital from 1999 to 2002, and does barack obama owe mitt romney an apology for some senior aide saying that he might have committed a felony if -- i mean, both sides, you tell me, brad, i'm -- there's such a turnoff, both sides, the way they, the way they run this race it's -- the american people are disgusted with this kind of politics. am i wrong? >> no, you're absolutely right. i think the american people want to get onto the real issues at hand, and either the president or mitt romney are actually addressing those issues. but let's face it, obama has invoked a 3-d strategy; district away from your own destructive policies, distort romney's record and divide the american people, rich against poor. this strategy is only useful when an incumbent doesn't have a record to stand on, to be hopeful on and to herald. and romney's letting
obama is to blame. 23% say congress. 20% say wall street. and only 18% say george w. bush which is interesting because it was about a year ago when george bush and the president, current president are neck and neck. 66% of those who responded said that they believe the lousy jobs growth and slow recovery is a result of bad policy and the big question is whose policy? as you can see right there, a plurality say it's the current president. >> gallup does say the president's approval rating is approved for the third straight time but still under 50%. it's like 46.8% and more important, the question we have to you is do you commute in the same direction with your spouse? >> and is that a good idea? and is your marriage better off? do you have a better chance of surviving if you actually car pool together? i've been trying for years to get my husband to leave the house at the ungodly hour that i do. >> keep shake him. >> i would to spend so much more time together with him to talk about those little tasks that we have to get done at the house. he keeps saying, you know, i'd rather
the policies he wants to pursue and the george w. bush policies from 2001 to 2008. it will be interesting to see if there is any daylight there. >> let's play veepstakes here. i don't like you to have you on television for any stretch of time without talking about the potential vp nominee could be. let's delegate talk about kelly ayot ayotte. how serious of a contender is she? >> well, if you're going to put one woman of a female candidate on that person of like five or six names, she's probably that person. she was campaigning with mitt romney last friday when he was in new hampshire. so it is worth note has gone she was by his side. i'm not sure she's necessarily top tier for reducing this to four or five names, but if you include to five, six, seven names, her name is definitely on that list. >> she's only been senator correct me he if i'm wrong two years or around two years? >> actually less than that. so she would actually help him on the female front, allowing perhaps mitt romney to erase that gender gap. but on the same front, she would draw comparisons to sarah palin who was less
reinforce contempt for america? did george w. bush's ivy league schools reinforce his contempt for america? and, hey, did the ivy league schools that all of these guys went to reinforce their contempt for america? and barack obama was indoctrinated by his father, who he met once? was rush limbaugh indoctrinated by his father, who was a lifelong republican and a delegate to the republican national committee in 1936? here is what president obama said that led rush to say, without equivocation, that the president hates america. >> look, if you've been successful, you didn't get there on your own. you didn't get there on your own. i'm always struck by people who think, wow, it must be just because i'm so smart. there are a lot of smart people out there. it must be because i worked harder than everybody else. let me tell you something, there are a whole bunch of hard-working people out there. if you are successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. there was a great teacher somewhere in your life. somebody helped to create this unbelievable american system that we have that allowed yo
george w. bush, also served as the u.s. trade rep, served in the house of representatives as well. knows his way around washington. i think he would be a great asset for governor romney. >> greta: thanks you. >> thank you. >> governor mitt romney's world tour. how is he doing on the world stage? john bolton goes "on the record" next. karl rove is here. president obama and governor romney are running neck and neck. what will be more important isn't candidate's likeability or the ability to manage the economy? that's a tough question. karl rove answers that and much more. and it's the story of the three bears that you have never seen. what happened to these cubs? and how did they get out of a big jam? it's all caught on camera.

. but that wing was discredited with the iraq war under george w. bush and certainly from a pure political position is not popular. so if he wants to go overseas and talk like he's dick cheney, i don't think you would believe that would be good politics for him, do you? >> i don't know if he would go over and speak like dick cheney. we do need a strong foreign policy and not so much to be liked in the world, we need to be predictable. what is it americans stand for? what will we do. i don't buy this idea of american imperialism or dominance, we're dominant because we're the largest, a third of the world people and produce a fourth of the wealth. that allows us to have a voluntary army of men and women, greatest technology in the world. that's bought and paid for with our system, one -- >> uncritical celebration in america does not equal pride in america. the recognition there's flaws and missteps is not a recognition it's not great, it acknowledges your denial. >> i'm not denying anything. >> i can't give awe history lesson here in a few seconds, you've got to read books and come prepared
. but rush was never outraged, nor should he have been, that george w. bush smoked a little weed when he was a young man, and wouldn't ever, ever answer questions about whether he used cocaine, but did admit to being an alcoholic. so smoking a little weed, maybe doing cocaine, and actually being an alcoholic are completely cool with rush, as long as it's a republican we're talking about. but barack obama smoking a little weed should be something that is used against him, should disqualify him from the presidency. rush is, of course, lying about this. rush doesn't think there's anything wrong with smoking a little weed in college. rush completely understands that choice, just as he understands much more intense relationships with illicit drugs, like his own relationship with drugs. rush limbaugh is a drug addict. a drug addict whose habit got him in trouble with the law. a drug addict whose high-priced lawyers made a deal to get him into rehab, to avoid prosecution on a drug felony that he was arrested for. rush limbaugh hates barack obama. he hates him. his hatred infuses every syllable
there. the media says a lot of things about mitt romney. in 1987, george h.w. bush, when he was vice president at the time, "newsweek" did the exact same thing. look at the article they did in 1987. they asked whether he was too wimpy to be president. this got under the bush family's skin. this is a different sort of media environment. back then, the cover of a news magazine having much impact in shaping a narrative in a presidential race in 1987 was probably much stronger than it is today, john. mitt romney will probably be same. >> george h.w. bush won, by the way. he may have been a wimp, but he won. >> also, the republicans succeeded in making michael dukakis the wimp in 1988, not george h.w. bush. so in the end, the wimp thing didn't really matter. >> we have news on the democratic side. we're waking up to news that bill clinton is going to be speaking on wednesday night of convention week in charlotte, the primetime speech that wednesday night, nominating president obama. looking at the long complicated relationship between the clintons and obamas, this is a particularly big de
the prosperity of the '90s. they are people whose main experiences were in the last decade under george w. bush, during the financial crisis, during the iraq war. >> and you write of them, you know, you say that there was a lot of emphasis on -- they were idealistic. all of these people are very idealistic. a lot of emphasis on diplomacy rather than more of the hawkish tactics of the administration that preceded them. and you said this about them. you said the obamians tended to know less about the nuances and subtleties of the issues and less concerned about the practical details of governance. they were, however, more adept at providing a determined opposition to the republicans and much better at figures out what to say in the public about foreign policy. tell me how that maybe has evolved for them over the past few years. >> right. it's interesting, because those -- i wrote those words about them during -- as they were in 2008, they were more politically attuned, i think, than not just the mccain forces but also hillary clinton's team. and as it's evolved, they are still intensely political
